Periya Krsnarayar Uttama-nambi went several times to the
court of Harihararaya, and in the course of fifteen years from

thirteen gifts (tiruvidaiyattam) with libations of water
(itdakadhara) from the hands of Harihararaya Maharaya,
Goppana Udaiyar, Viruppana Udaiyar, Muttaya Dannayaka,
Tammanna-Udaiyar, Pradhani Soniappa Dannayaka's secre-

pillars of the amudu-waydapa with gilded copper-plates, and
covered with silver the plank in the centre on which the sacred
